The AERC already assesses fees based on these same things:
Horse registration fee (which there were no complaints about having to
make expensive changes to the computer system to accommodate this fee when
it was added), the per rider fee paid for each rider at a ride, and the
AERC already charges conference attendees for the privaledge of attending
It would just be nice if these fees closely resembled the actual
costs to the to the AERC for the services provided.
The only change to the computer system and/or the accounting system that
the AERC would have to make is the dollar figure that they charge for
...except for the awards program.
Which is a problem they could solve simply by giving out cheap
awards--none of us ride endurance for the awards anyway right???
What I will be getting from the AHSA for my Zone 10 year end award for
finishing in the top six (they only give out awards to sixth place) is
....a ribbon ($1.25 tops).
THe joy comes in the accomplishment, not in the award itself.
